From the Arechabala family whose distilling roots in Cuba go back to the 1870s, these rums still use the original family recipe. Forced to flee during the revolution, the family relocated in Miami and their rums are once again available. Versatile in cocktails and great for sipping, these rums are a welcome addition to any bar.
Anejo Blanco ($18.99): The base rum is aged for a single year, filtered and blended, then returned to the barrels for an additional two months. With aromas of bright tropical fruit and white flowers, this is a perfect rum for a classic mojito.
Anejo Classico ($20.99): The base rum is aged for one to three years, filtered and blended, then returned to the barrels for three more months. The notes of pineapple and apricots are well complemented by the gentle oak offering hints of nuts and vanilla.
